war. senator john mccain suggesting to bring in bill clinton as a peace negotiator and calling him an honest broker to go in to handle it. and now let's go to aymon goldien. >> well, palestinian forces have left today alone 25 people killed. these targets have varied in range and scope. one incident took place on sunday that is drawing strong condemnation from people here and several around the world saying that it may have amounted to a massacre at the house of one leading member of a hamas militant. according to israel, this is a house belonging to a senior official of hamas, but at the same time there were 12 people inside of that house, including four women and four children. all of them killed. so many people are condemning that attack. meanwhile, it is nighttime here and the people of gaza are bracing themselves for what could be another night of deadly attacks despite the diplomatic activity in cairo. negotiations are under way as well as palestinian factions as to what to do next, but those here in gaza say they are preparing for a ground invasion, and meaning if israel lau
is the more hawkish person with the bin laden raid, with the afghanistan search. that said, bill clinton and joe biden are close to each other. hillary clinton has served barack obama well. there would probably be some sort of conversation to try to avert that kind of head-to-head. joe biden has run for president a couple of times before. and he has not done particularly well in the iowa caucuses. >> obviously hillary clinton would have one president in her corner, no matter what, bill clinton. but she has served president obama very well as has joe biden. wouldn't that president the president in a very tight spot? >> it would. >> well, like jonathan said i think some conversations will have to be had behind the scenes before they decide who will go forward. but i think the president will maybe say something -- you know, he'll try to stay out of it, but i think he'll make his choice known behind the scenes. >> so who on the right would be the biggest opponent? would it be a christie or rubio? >> those are certainly two candidates that could come forward in 10 t 2016. marco rubio saying h
of it followed bill clinton's 1993 tax increase. now, mitt romney has just spent two years telling us that tax cuts are all you need to stimulate the economy. is that wrong? >> absolutely wrong. supply side economics is bunk. we have seen historically not only when bill clinton raised taxes the economy did very well. george w. bush in 2001, 2003, cut taxes and the economy did very badly and then ultimately went really over a cliff in 2008. or more evidence for the first three decades after the second world war in the united states, the top tax rate never fell below 70% under dwight d. eisenhower, president eisenhower -- >> and yet professor, we have heard paul ryan, the so-called budget policy wonk of the house, repeatedly tell us that what we need to do is cut taxes and the economy does great. >> well, that's just simply not true. we had an election. most of the americans obviously did not believe that nonsense, and it is absolutely nonsense. there's no correlation at all between tax rates on the very top and the economy doing worse or for that matter doing much better. but here we have a hug
shown and a pollster for bill clinton and joining us live remote from beautiful west palm beach florida, packdel. and a former pollster for president jimmy carter who is hanging out with the rich and beautiful people. so i'm going to go last, pat, just because of that. >> okay. >> doug, look. there's a lame duck session before the fiscal cliff hits. it's really brief. there's a bunch of holidays. can a grand bargain really be hammered out? >> i hope so. bottom line, we need one. the decline in the stock market last week said that the markets and the financial communities are not going to be tolerant if we don't get a grand market. bottom line, i think the republicans have to cave in on of and be willing to increase revenue, even increase rates, pivot the conversation to entitlement reform and spending cuts, but bottom line the president has them over a barrel. >> john, i think they will kick it down the road. an interim deal that simply post bones all of the elements of the fiscal cliff for three months. and gym baker of two admissions pointed that out. >> that's possible. that's the ha
that if we are going to sacrifice, bill clinton and people like myself should be paying more taxes, and that does not mean that we won't make investments, and warren buffett has it right. >> and by the way, the stinking rich are paying 1% or 2% more, they will still be stinking rich. thank you, lenny davis. >> thank you, piers. >>> and next, jay tapper covering the front lines and what h did he think of the contentious news conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious news conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious news conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious ne conference today? that is coming up. did he think contentious news conference today? that is coming up. if you are one of the millions of men who have used androgel 1%, there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low testosterone. androgel 1.62% is from the makers of the number one prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. it raises your testosterone levels, and... is concentrated, so you could use less gel. and with androgel 1.62%
people. one way to go back to where it was under bill clinton. that's what the president's saying he won't budge on. another way though is to close loopholes or cap deductions. the think tank third way said you could get about $1.3 million capping deductions. that affects the wealthy. there's many ways to get revenue, why is he only saying i'm going to go for this way? >> let's remember that he was very conciliatory in his speech on election night. and he even reiterated today, erin, that if republicans have other ideas on how to get to where we need to go, if other democrats have other ideas, which would mean to deal with this in a balanced way that does not hurt middle class families, workers, seniors, the most vulnerable, i think he's willing to listen to that. so i think that is where the compromise can lie, if republicans really understand they're the ones that are going to need to give more. >> do you agree with that? the president did win electoral popular vote. the margin was only 2%, but he did win it. >> sure. well, elections have consequences, right? and this is the consequenc
the chance to ban twinkies. >>> to politics now and a call for bill clinton to get involved in the middle east peace talks. >> i know he would hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have the parties sit down together as an honest broker, but we have a lot of work to do to regain the credibility, because we are crumbling all over the middle east. >> now, during a tour of the jersey shore, vice president biden said that the white house will do everything it can to rebuild the communities ravaged by hurricane sandy, and including his seaside heights where he spent time as a boy. >> well, renwe are not going anywhere, gov, and you have a homeboy this the deal who gets it. >> new jersey governor chris christie who does not back down from anything steered clear from the question about hostess going out of business. >> i'm on "saturday night live" enough, and you think that you could get me behind this microphone having me talk about twinkies? this is a setup, man. i nknow it. you people are the worst. this is a setup and i'm not answering questions o
to do? he has four years left. we saw with ronald reagan and bill clinton. with a second term and a better economy, you can achieve a lot and become quite popular in the process? does obama have that in him? what do you want him to do now that he has four more years? >> the big thing he has going for him, he has four years he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. they start these elections about two years ahead of time usually. and that's where their focus goes on how do i keep doing this job, whether i'm a senator, congressman, or whatever it is, if you are a career politician, you always look out for yourself first. when the president's in this position, having been elected a second time, now he has nothing to lose. >> where do you you this he's been weak and where does he need to be stronger? >> i think he's been weak. my son was a huge obama supporter until obama ordered that american's death with the drone and then he lost my son. my son was so offended that a president could kill a united states citizen without a trial, without anything like that. and my belief
to the other. no one party can control the outcome of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. >> john boehner is making his bid for speaker of the house official in eye letter sent to his colleagues he says his priorities are taking on the president and democrats in the senate. he calls house republicans the last line of defense. mitch mcconnell is already thinking about 2014. the day after the election he held a fund-raiser for 1,000 bucks a person you could attend the reception. and here's a great perk about being first lady. michelle obama didn't want to wait until january to watch the third season of "downton abbey" so it sent dvds to the white house. the three of us are -- with hands on hips, where's ours? where's ours? >> if you read only one thing this morning, today's must read is courtesy of the national constitution center, which argues in a fascinating article why the petraeus affair has nothing on the nation's first sex scandal, hint, it included a duel and it's up on our facebook page alt facebook/jansingco. borm the naturally sweet monk fru
. in the 1990s, there was a presidential endorsement as president bill clinton included a twinkie in the millennium time capsule. we've seen it put to the test for shelf life. now the twinkie needs someone to come to its rescue or we'll have to say goodbye to the twinkie for good. >> i once remember having a deep-fried twinkie at the minnesota state fair. that's a good memory. we have much more aned the next hour of "cnn saturday morning", which starts right now. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. glad you're with us. on the brink of war, as fighting escalates between israel and hamas, experts say there will likely be a lot more bloodshed before the violence stops. we are only 45 days away until the fiscal cliff deadline. could a deal get done before it's too late? we'll take a look at the likelihood of that happening or not. >>> and pets abandoned because of superstorm sandy. four-legged victims in need of help. i'll take you on a ride along with their new guardians. >>> despite calls around the world for restraint, the situation along the israeli-gaza board ser rder is
with prudent spending cuts that show fiscal responsibility. you know, don't forget bill crystal said last week on fox that when taxes were raised in the reagan administration, he didn't say when taxes were raised in the clinton administration. the economy took off. so i think leaders -- >> it's possible. it's definitely possible. >> talk about the spirit of compromise that he had mentioned. what does the president get here out of this in if he gets business leaders on board to get republicans to deal? if he gets them on board, will it force republicans to deal? >> we've seen repeatedly the republicans are seen on their own planetary orbit. if you get wealthy americans to say to them that you have to cut a deal, i think what is really important here is you need to show fiscal responsibility. there's 1 trillion to $2 trillion of gas sitting on the sidelines. and they want to be invested in this country, in growing businesses, in building new equipment. >> does this show us therefore we might be seeing what you just described? release some of the 1.2 trillion dlarz? >> if we can show fiscal respo
